    I was told probably JFK
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Accuweather is predicting a 61% chance of thunderstorms for Thursday. No specific times listed, and obviously this could change: http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/eas.../2102389?day=4

    Would a storm delay them from flying in?

    On the brighter side, Sat-Mon are predicted to be beautiful!

    Inclement weather could delay their arrival but I wouldn't be too worried yet.

    If these are just the typical spring/summer pop-up storms, they will usually arrive in the afternoon once the air heats up.
    If it was an organized system, the storms could appear any time.

    At this time, I'm not worried.

    Is this a different Osprey than the ones that they use for the Fleet week demos?

    Yup I remember I was there for one of the arrivals. Nasty day and the Angels popped out of the clouds on final for Runway One Four!!

    AAM B-25 Miss Hap was buzzing around tonite around 7PM. That sound of a big metal warbird brought me out of my house to catch her a few times!!

    John Klatt's Air National Guard Extra 300 and MX-S aircraft and his new Jack Link's Extra 300 are in the Sheltair Hangar
    and his wild looking Jack Link's 18 wheeler hauling the Screamin' Sasquatch Jet Waco has arrived also and is parked on the
    southside of Sheltair inside the fence by the gas tanks. Here's a pic of the Screamin' Sasquatch hauler from his FB page

    I heard her, but it is too wooded here, and I couldn't catch a glimpse! :(

    Falcon, as Thursday approaches, will that arrival estimate become more firm?
